thing that really matters is if you're in a down part of the cycle right before an election. so barack obama doesn't have to face the voters anymore. so a lot of this talk about where he stands in the polls is only relevant if it actually leads to defections among democrats. the republicans already oppose him. if his low poll numbers cause democrats to head for the hills, that's when we should start saying it's really significant. so far, that hasn't happened. so the consequences of his low poll numbers are not yet serious. that doesn't mean they might not get serious in the new year if they can't get their act together on the website. if they do get their act together and these patches work, we don't know the antibiotics answer to that question yet, despite the cheerleading from the white house. if it does get better at the beginning part of the new year, he has every opportunity to have a much more successful 2014. and i think what we're starting to see now on this question of the minimum wage, which affects a lot more than kids, the assumption was it used to just be for teenagers. n

're acting the website literally can last for another year. because there is not an election for another year. how is that possible, they think that can keep going? >> i don't know. i mean, the problem for them is that obama care is their plan. and that's why they don't have anything to say. and they had to focus on the website. so i think the media and republicans were behind the narrative. you know, this shutdown affected the website coverage. and then the website was getting fixed and we were still talking about the website as if it was broken. and i think that the bottom line here is that once you sign up for insurance, you're not thinking about a website. on january 1st, when i go to the doctor, i'm not going to be thinking about the website. and nobody is going to ask me about the website. how long did it take you to sign up? nobody is going to be asking that. when you go to get your prescription and no co-pay for preventive care for women, you're not going to be thinking about the website. >> i think about the history books in 2040, are they going to be reading about health care or a w

as they head into the midterm elections to be broader than just obama care, democrats realize that if this is about obama care in the mid-term elections it's not a good issue for them and even though we see positive things going on, they want things to be about more than that. for some, this is a signal about getting his mojo back. >> the president's economic policies improve government reliance rather than economic mobility and rather than tackling income inequality by lifting people up, he's been fixated on taxing some down. >> why do you think republicans seem so fixated on the government reliance narrative and this tax and spend. this tax and spend phrase that they of the to use over and over again? >> that's the only message that they've been able to promote, and i think a lot of the republican message has been similar to mitt romney's 47% comments and it's a problem for republicans because they spend the majority of the time since the 2012 elections trying to cut food stamps and we also know they oppose a minimum wage hike with respect to sequestration and they expressed

elections. albeit it flawed, albeit it very serious allegations of corruption. and yet people came out and they voted. under the taliban, and shortly after, that was absolutely unheard of. so there is progress. there are substantial things you can point to. education. canada made it a priority to build 50 schools. immunizing children. getting basic health in place. improving the infrastructure of the country. so they could move away from a drug economy. to a more diverse and traditional egrarian type of economy. so we put in place the road map opportunities. will the afghan people be able to achieve it? much will turn on their governance and their own leadership. but we have laid that opportunity in front of them. i don't think we can back away from the necessity to continue assisting. canada has committed $100 million ongoing. and there is an old legal maxim that says once you start to render assistance, you have to continue. you can't let somebody drown. and i think the international community does recognize that. and also that the stakes are high. there are many, as is the case ongo

to the election of 2014 with the controversy and difficulty over the rollout of the affordable care act and i cannot imagine they want to open themselves up to the you vulnerability to the potential shutdown. >> recently, we talked about and we heard our own dana bash in her reporting show that the gop is instructing one another on how to, you know, woo women voters and how to talk to women leaders, et cetera. at the same time, is there a feeling that democrats are taking women voters for granted? >>. >> well, you know, i look at this as sort of within the context of the broader reality that we face. house republicans have largely barricaded themselves into homogenously conservative districts and 80% of them are more white than the national average. they tend to be leaning very much to the right and that basically allows them to pursue a politics that allows them to keep the house and does nothing to deal with the broader challenges in the electorate that have prevented them from wing the popular vote in five of the last six elections. questions about insensitivity to women parallel the same
